He taught us a lot of things and provided opportunities for us to attend college. He even took the time to be a 4-H community club leader for many years. He was a wonderful caregiver to my mother ...

However, there is a downside – a lack of vetting of what is presented as data and fact.

While this still happens ...

Fatherhood Nation

Our image of an ideal father has been shaped in part by father figures at the national level-starting with George Washington as the Father of our Country. His strong leadership shepherded us through a war with weak, tepid support from half the country-a collection of colonies which desperately needed to be glued together. He was the glue.
